Hollywood: Paramount Pictures, 1941. Two vintage borderless studio still photographs and one vintage double-weight reference photograph from the 1941 musical film. One with the stamp of Consolidated Poster Service on the verso, along with a provenance stamp.

Based on Irving Berlin and Morrie Ryskind's 1940 Broadway play. A satirical take on political corruption set in Louisiana, following a bumbling senator investigating graft throughout the state who himself becomes the target of a crooked political scheme.

Set in Louisiana.

Two photographs 9 x 7.75 inches, one photograph 6 x 8.5 inches. Very Good plus, lightly creased, one with two small closed tears to the bottom edge.
